Leaving the Sunshine Behind

Florida, Road Trip, States

We started the day in Melbourne in shorts weather. We broke camp, hooked up the Silver Shadow, climbed into the Trailblazer and turned on the air conditioning. We continued our journey up US-1 and A1A stopping for one more look and the sand and the surf in Flagler Beach. It was a trip down memory lane too since it evoked many memories of our years in Volusia County when the kids were young. To emphasize the joy of the sunshine and surf, we listened to Jimmy Buffett on the iPod. As we neared Jacksonville we saw gray skies ahead. Once we had Florida in our rearview mirror we were driving in misty rain. When we stopped for gas we were blasted with cold air as we stepped from the car. When we stopped for the night in Fort Mills SC, we set up camp in freezing rain. It was all we could do to not turn ourselves around and head back to the sunshine.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
